Review

“Debra is a goldmine of innovative tips and the latest theory, expertly separating fact from fiction. Readers will love getting to know her and her sage advice through the pages of her indispensable book.”—makeup artist Trish McEvoy
 
“I absolutely loved this very straightforward and informative guide to skin care. Dr. Jaliman provides
excellent advice and tips on a wide variety of skin care topics from the best inexpensive products to describing the latest dermatological procedures.”—actress Sela Ward

Skin Rules is not just filled with useful tips everybody can use to have better skin - it has brand new information I hadn't seen before. Great little book!”--actress Vera Farmiga

"Debra Jaliman's clear and comprehensive book on skin care is refreshingly accessible, and as expert as we all know that she herself is.She has generously included the names of numerous, readily available products to help with the regimes she prescribes, and of course she has her own superb line of products, too. The overall message is that with proper, educated care and Debra's guidance, we can all have healthy, beautiful skin. This book is terrific."--actress Ali McGraw

"I love this book! And so will every other woman who cares about the way she looks. Dr. Debra Jaliman has turned out a real gem, full of detailed information about the best products to use and lots of other useful tips about beauty in general. She also talks about the use of Botox and all kinds of different fillers. I have a great English skin and have always looked after it, but even I learned so much more from this leading NY Doctor. For instance, I now know to take biotin every day to help my nails and hair. I'll never again go shopping for skin products without a Debra Jaliman list. Skin Rules is clearly and authoritatively written. It is precise, informative and fills a real need."--- Barbara Taylor Bradford, author of Playing The Game

“For years, glamorous New Yorkers have sought out Dr. Jaliman to look their best. This book has great, useful and fun information!"--Jana Klauer, M.D., author of How the Rich Get Thin and The Park Avenue Nutritionist's Plan

"All of my famous Hollywood clients go to Debra Jaliman to maintain their youthful appearance. She is down to earth and never kisses and tells. I love Skin Rules."--Susan Ciminelli, author of  The Ciminelli Solution: A 7-Day Plan for Radiant Skin

"If you care about your image, you should have Dr. Debra Jaliman on speed dial and a copy of Skin Rules always at hand."--Donny Deutsch, television personality, advertising executive and author of Often Wrong, Never in Doubt

"Skin Rules - very informative and easy to understand. This book should be required reading for all adolescents and anyone with skin problems. I was fortunate to have parents that taught me the "cardinal" rule of clear skin. I love that one doesn't have to go to the dermatologist or buy expensive creams for every outbreak."--Katharine Ross, actress

“What a remarkable book – accessible, helpful and to the point!  Every woman should have it by her bed or at her desk. ”--actress Olympia Dukakis

"Dr. Debra Jaliman has been my dermatologist for years. I can't say I look as pretty as she does --but I'm getting close. She's almost too good - for my own book cover, my publishers said I didn't look old enough in the photos. Thanks, Dr. J. You rule!"--Richard Kirshenbaum, author of Madboy: My Journey from Adboy to Adman

Product Description

From New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice, a moving family story that "will strike a chord in every mother, daughter, or sister" (Marie Claire)

In The Silver Boat, New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice has written a heart-wrenching yet heartwarming portrait of a family in all its flawed complexity. The McCarthy sisters have come to Martha's Vineyard to say good-bye to their family's beach house—the place they were happiest together. Each has her own complicated issues and is struggling with the difficult process of letting go, but when a cache of old letters spurs them to visit Ireland, each woman comes to see herself in a new light. True-to-life sisters, the beach, laughter, and passionate love—The Silver Boat is Luanne Rice at her very best.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed- not Luanne Rice's best novel Oct. 30 2011
Format:Hardcover
I have read every single Luanne Rice book and have always been very pleased with them because she is the kind of author who writes books one can't put down. Unfortunately, The Silver Boat was not one of those books. It was very slow getting into it and written in third person; Luanne Rice usually writes in first person which brings more of a connection with the main character. By the time the story reached it's climax, it was more than half way through. I found the characters to be disconnected through the story and not very powerful. This is the only book where I had to force myself to pick up and read to see how it was going to end. I'm sorry to give Luanne Rice such a mediocre review because I have loved every one of her books, but this one does not compare with her other works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Luanne Rice Winner! April 8 2011
By Barva - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Time after time, novel after novel, Luanne Rice proves that she knows how to write about families in all shapes and sizes. Her newest is no exception. The McCarthy sisters and their families and their stories spring to life in The Silver Boat. One warning - the book is addictive and once I started it, I had trouble stopping.
I highly recommend this book as a great read. Enjoy! I sure did.

1.0 out of 5 stars Choppy and amateurish Nov. 3 2011
By Lady O - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I picked this up on a whim as it was prominently displayed. Read the reviews and the dust jacket, and it seemed perfect for me. Wrong. The author spent a great deal of ink telling us what the characters were all about without letting the characters develop on their own. The side story with the "graphic novel" was boring and disruptive. I felt as though I were reading the bare bones of a "Hallmark Hall of Fame" film script. Very dissatisfying.

4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining family drama April 16 2011
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Each of the sisters looks back at the family beach house on Martha's Vineyard with fond memories. They can track their roots to the Massachusetts colony as their ancestors were one of the first families to settle here. However, with mom's death and the trio living far away and unable to keep the place as a vacation site, they know they must sell.

Thus the McCarthy siblings (Dar, Delia and Rory) come to Daggett's Way with sadness. Adding to the despondency is the only offer comes from insufferable boors who plan to tear Dagget's Way down and replace it with a despicable reproduction of a French chateau. Dar the manga graphic novelist wishes she had the power of her comic book heroine. Delia has other issues as she struggles with her son's meth addiction that is also killing her relationship with her husband; reminding her of her Irish father Michael who vanished at sea years ago while insisting King Charles I gave his ancestors land within the Daggett acres.

This is an entertaining family drama as readers see the sadness of the three sisters who must give up their long time family heritage. The story line is insightful when the tale remains anchored on Martha's Vineyard profoundly studying the impact of the loss of something sacred (not just the sisters as another character has confronted the same loss). When the siblings chase after an inane dream that even if they succeed accomplishes nothing, the plot loses its plausibility though one could argue this is a coping defense mechanism. Overall readers will enjoy the McCarthy sisters learning you truly cannot go home no matter how much you wish otherwise.

2.0 out of 5 stars disapointed April 14 2011
By lynn k - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have always been a fan of Luanne Rice but I must say I was just plain bored and disapointed by this new book.The author focused more on Dar's cartoon charactor than developing the actual charactors of the story.I am sad to say the story was also very predictable. No depth here.This book left me cold.

1.0 out of 5 stars sparkles1 June 7 2011
By D. J. Karr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Disjointed writing. Characters were not fully developed. Read more like an outline of a story than a novel. Had potential for a good story but skirted the story for unrelated trivia that detracted. Was disappointed.

Sometimes it felt as if shed given up so much, bargained away chips of herself, just to make everyone else happy. Shed stayed busy, kept herself from seeing what was really going on, viewed only what she wanted to see, what she could handle. Now, being awake and alive every moment was sometimes so frightening and painful, so daunting; deep feelings were rising to the surface, making her face them head-on. &quote;
